    What great is that there are only 2 URFA right now.

    With the cap space the Jets will have after Sanchez and Holmes are gone (which should be - but not definite), then at OLB I would like to either 1. sign a guy like Orakpo, who would flourish here (if Pace can get 10 sacks with this D-line, Orakpo will explode) or 2. re-sign Pace if it's too expensive. I don't expect Pace to have another 10 sacks, but he's better than the nothing that would be there - unless there's someone else? Spencer?

    I noticed that. Was just getting the thread setup for this year, sources are a little thin right now, expect much better ones in a few weeks.

    On that entire free agent list there's really only two people I really care about. Folk and Howard.

    Any sense of what Howard's going to be looking for? What the market will be for a guy like him?

    Thanks for making this thread, posting in one area and updating it. Makes it much easier to see our moves that scrolling through tons of pages on the strip.

    Agreed, it is completely classless to put something like this in a thread and even worse make it a sticky.

    oh really? so its classless to call someone a dogkiller.

    ok got it.

    if someone rapes your daughter (god forbid), please remember to be classy and respect that individual and treat them like a human being once they have done their "time"

    listen, i'm not trying to spark up another mike vick controversial debate, and i am a huge dog lover and lifetime owner, but lets look at it plain and simple. a dog is property, it's an animal, it's a dog. while i'm not condoning animal cruelty, it's nowhere in the same realm as someone raping a woman. are you clamoring for this guy in NY that kicked the cat to be put on death row?

    this is a football site. it's not a PETA site. there's no need to refer to the guy as Mike "dogkiller" Vick. it's completely bush league. did anyone refer to Donte Stallworth as "drunk driving man killer"?
